“Inspiration, Compassion, Awareness, Wellbeing, Communication - the essence of ICAWC”
A huge thank you to all who attended ICAWC in Barcelona, Spain and helped make it such a success.
We were delighted to welcome over 300 delegates from 38 countries for our 15th ICAWC in Barcelona. Our fantastic speakers covered a wide range of topics over 3 days. There was a day of shelter visits, an interactive afternoon of workshops followed by two days of presentations. Delegates and speakers were also given an opportunity for networking and exchange of ideas.
We also carried out 3 days of pre-conference lectures, practical behaviour advice and neutering with local shelters and organisations in an attempt to give something back to the organisations who work so hard to constantly improve animal welfare in Barcelona.
Clarissa mentioned our grants programme - don't forget to look at our grants section on this website for details.
We were touched by the Spanish hospitality and certainly loved the warm Mediterranean weather. The participants seem to have taken away ideas and inspiration to carry on their quest to improve companion animal welfare in their own countries.
We will be uploading the speakers' presentations online soon, please check the resources section of our website in a couple of weeks.
